A Grease Interceptor (GI) is typically located outside, underground, and is accessible through manhole covers. This is the standard grease removal system.
The levels of floatable grease and settable solids must be measured once a month on the outlet side of the GI using a Dipstick Pro or an approved equivalent. Grease Interceptors need to be pumped by a grease hauler at least quarterly (every three months).

Maintenance Log for Grease Interceptors
A maintenance log documenting the monthly measurements and quarterly pumping details must be maintained and submitted to the Grease Control program each quarter.
The maintenance log must be kept in the establishment and made immediately available to any Grease inspector upon request. Most grease waste haulers provide this service for their customers.
